"Any parent of a small child knows that the best cure for a youngster's bad temper is to redirect his or her attention toward something humorous. Lichtenheld demonstrates just how this works in a collection of large, double-spread cartoons depicting a variety of situations that might cause a rotten mood...Lichtenheld's big, bold, broadly comic art style...is well suited to the tone of the text and has solid child appeal. Give this one to grumpy kids, or to anyone in need of cheering up." -Booklist
